As reported earlier, Aadujeevitham is set to get a grand theatrical release on April 10, 2024.

Meanwhile, the crew members of the Blessy directorial are currently busy with the post-production works of the film.

The celebrated sound designer took to his official X (formerly Twitter) handle and shared a lovely video from the editing table of Aadujeevitham. The video reveals a tiny portion of the marvelous background score, composed by the Oscar Award-winning musician, AR Rahman. “#Aadujeevitham shaping up. From the maestro @arrahman to the master craftman #Blessy every frame is an emotional rollercoaster,” wrote Resul Pookutty in his Twitter post.

“Kudos to @PrithviOfficial and @Amala_ams,” further added the senior sound designer, hinting that the lead pair, Prithviraj Sukumaran and Amala Paul have delivered stellar performances in the film. The leading man, on the other hand, shared Resul Pookutty’s post on his official handle, and wrote: “Genius at work! @resulp #Aadujeevitham.”
